MDE510 - Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch System with High Precision Adjusters

Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch System with High Precision Adjusters   


  • 20 nm resolution with patented high resolution adjusters
  • Ultra-stable patented†† design XYZ flexure stage
  • Suitable for singlemode fibre (125/250 µm cladding/jacket)
  • Orthogonal alignment grooves
  • 2 mm travel per axis
  • 4.5 kg load capacity

Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch system comprising: 3-axis high-precision manual flexure stage with adjustable force fibre (US: fiber) holder, objective lens mount with RMS thread, and small fixed bracket. Suitable for launching free space light beams into single-mode fibre due to its accurate 3D flexure-based positioning.

All accessories are compatible with the Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages. The optical axis height is 18 mm above the platform surface and on the centre line of the location slot. Where necessary a locating tongue forms part of the accessory. A standard clamp system is used and is supplied with the flexure stages and accessory platforms. The choice of objective lens is subject to user preference, and must be ordered separately. Extra clamp sets (MDE154) are available if required.
